what size throttle body?

My mods are LT headers, xpipe, KandN cold air induction, 4.10 gears, Tuned. I plan on supercharging my 01 GT n the future.

I recommend the BBK 78mm throttle intake. Cost is low, its a touch big for most n/a cars, but its ready to rock when you boost.

You may(may) lose a little low-end power because of a loss of intake velocity, but once you get up in the rpms you should get gains. You're going to have that issue with anything big enough for FI gains. I only recommend the BBK piece because of cost and that it isn't a full 80mm, which would be a touch excessive for the N/A.. I am also assuming you are kinda focusing your build on the boosted future.

I have the 78mm bbk I love it and you are more modded than me...throttle response picked up and it pulls like a raped date after 3k rpm...
